At one time, cosmetic dentistry was thought to be a luxury available only to a handful of lucky people. However, advances in dental technology and the materials we use make it possible for anyone to take advantage of treatments that can easily transform a less-than-perfect smile. Let’s face it – looks are important, and your smile can speak volumes before you say a word. If your smile doesn’t live up to your expectations, beautiful porcelain veneers placed at our Birmingham dental office are definitely an option you should consider. Outstanding Results Have you ever looked at celebrities and wished that your teeth looked as perfect as theirs? We can assure you that most of them weren’t born with perfectly straight, white teeth. The secret is porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dental treatment that can easily and affordably give you a beautiful, “movie-star” smile. Porcelain Veneers Conceal Imperfections Porcelain veneers are popular because they can correct a wide variety of dental flaws that detract from your appearance. Veneers can: Repair worn, broken, or chipped teeth Conceal stained teeth that are resistant to whitening Alter the shape of your teeth Close uneven gaps and spaces between teeth Correct the appearance of misaligned teeth How Porcelain Veneers Work Considering the beautiful results, having porcelain veneers placed doesn’t require you to take a lot of time out of your busy schedule. Dr. Cook has transformed many smiles with veneers, and the process can usually be completed in only two or three office visits. We start by gently removing a small bit of enamel from your tooth. This is necessary to ensure that the veneers fit properly along your gumline, creating a perfectly natural appearance. Next, we take impressions of your teeth and send them off to our dental lab, where your customized veneers will be created by skilled ceramicists. When you return to our office, Dr. Cook will check the veneers for proper fit, and then bond them securely to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can last up to ten years, but a lot depends on the care you take with your teeth. Oral hygiene and habits like teeth grinding and biting down on hard or crunchy foods can all affect the lifespan of your new veneers. The Beauty of Porcelain You may think of porcelain as being very fragile, but dental porcelain is actually a strong and durable material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers reflect light, eliminating the appearance of a flat, unnatural dental restoration. However, the key to the true beauty of porcelain veneers is in the hands of a skilled professional like Dr. Cook. It takes an artistic eye and exceptional attention to detail to create veneers that look just like your natural teeth.
